Back in early 2020, Field Bag designer Karen Templer persuaded her artist husband, Bob Bechtol, to paint a small number of one-of-a-kind Town Bags, dubbed the Downtown Bag, which were a huge hit. To christen his new Florida painting studio, the three of us cooked up another treat: KITS for one-of-a-kind Field Bags, each one hand-painted by Bob, to be sewn by you! This is a limited edition of 50 kits and will not be repeated.*

Just like the regular canvas kits, each kit contains all of the fabric and notions you need to create your own Field Bag, but in this case the canvas from which you'll cut the outer panel will have been painted by the artist (and signed on what will become the bottom of the bag). Each "painting" is made up of layers of black, yellow and white dots, but no two painted panels are exactly alike, so no two sewn bags will be exactly alike. The fabric for the interior pockets are undyed/unpainted natural canvas, and as always you'll have your choice between vegetable-tanned leather or undyed cotton webbing for the wrist strap. The Field Bag sewing pattern is an add-on to the kit, so if you don't already own it, don't forget to include that in your order!

Please Note:

  • Some paint may have bled through and will thus show on the inside and/or the cord casing, which will add to the unique character of the bag!
  • It may smell like paint for a bit!
  • The lightly painted canvas will be somewhat stiffer and sturdier than regular canvas, and make the bag a little more resistant to being pulled closed with the drawcord. It will soften and take on its own patina with time and use.
  • The kit will include a few additional notes on sewing with the painted canvas.
  • Again, you will not know exactly what you'll get (once you've sewn it up, your bag will loosely resemble those pictured), so please only order if you find that thrilling!
  • Sales are final.
  • Limit 2 kits per customer.

    *If this kit's a hit, we may do another one in the future, but it will be different from these. To be added to the wishlist for that, use the "notify me" button above and we'll send you an email if and when it occurs!

Notions: In addition to the fabric, each kit comes with the following:

  • 5 grommets so you have enough to practice before your final setting
  • A length of cotton cording to form the bag closure
  • Choose either a leather or cotton webbing carrying handle

Pattern Option: Bundle the Fabric & Notions kit with the Field Bag pattern and save! Choose "PDF Pattern," or "Paper Pattern" and save $8.

Please Note: You will need the Field Bag pattern to sew this kit.
